Daria at Boutique Cafe just turned me on to a new email service from Boutique Up! sure to change how buyers and mompreneurs do business. For mompreneur monday I bring you Boutique Up! Daily (BUD for short), a new weekly email where you can showcase your products or view new lines that might be perfect for your new boutique.
Here are the details from Boutique Up!:
Retailers, merchants, the media, review bloggers and other venues … can either post a query looking for new products, or they might just browse to find a product that catches their eye. Those interested in finding new products can email me at email@example.com with BUYER in the title.
Sellers can respond to retailer’s queries if they have a product that matches what the retailer is looking for. Sellers can also post to BUD about products they have available for wholesale, dropship or mutual arrangement. Simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with SELLER in the title.
I also like the post, Boutique Up! Daily is here!, which adds in a few more important details. The best part about this fabulous new service is that it’s FREE! I have seen a lot of great sites attempting to match buyers and sellers but very few, if any, do it without a fee or commission.
We subscribed late last week and are anxiously awaiting our first weekly “tradeshow” courtesy of Boutique Up! I’ve heard that in just one issue two businesses have placed products and three more are negotiating. Now that’s cool! If you want to receive your own BUD email (and who wouldn’t? hello!) you can sign up on the Boutique Up! website. Just look for the bright green box in the top right corner of the page. You can’t miss it–and won’t want to! –Emily
